import-module ac*
import-csv c:\file.csv | %  {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser | select (whaevet objects you need) | export-csv c:\results.csv -nti}

Open in new window


Since I am not sure what attributes you are after here is a list:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This should work:

import-module ac*
import-csv c:\file.csv | %  {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser -identity $user -properties * | select  Officephone, samaccountname | export-csv c:\result.csv -nti

Open in new window

Missing an ending brace "}" it was set to overwrite the CSV with each user
$users = import-csv c:\file.csv | % {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser -identity $user -properties * | select  SamAccountName,Officephone} | export-csv c:\result.csv -nti

its alright. Also, is OfficePhone a valid attribute?

Usually there is just

telephoneNumber, mobile, otherTelephone, facsimileTelephoneNumber, homePhone, ipPhone, otherPager, otherMobile, otheripPhone, otherHomephone, and otherFacsimileTelephoneNumber...

Unless its an added attribute from exchange.

Also, if you could give credit to becraig, I just added a brace. At least give him most of it.

sorry, what i meant to do was select multiple answers and select craigs as the best.

Yes officephone is the telephone attribute.

How can i undo my points scoring?  Can you go to a moderator and ask them to do it?

You can just file a request for attention, though I am ok to split the points.
